If you don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, basically, its a worldwide annual “event” where in the month of November you write a 50,000 word novel. Crazy? Yes, yes I am. Always wanted to participate but this year, I’m going to, for the first time. I’ve had this novel idea for a long time now, i have so much invested in the plot, the characters etc. But I never get after chapter five. Even though I know where the story is leading, I can’t get there. If that makes sense. I do have a battle plan, as well as everyone that does NaNoWriMo tells me not edit. If you listen closely, you can hear my inner editor screeching. But my first goal is to actually finish the novel, in a month..Thennnn I have the rest of the year to edit.
I’m scared shitless and beyond excited all at the same time.
Hope the next time you hear from me it’s not from the mental institute!

Oh hey there, I’ve been away these days, mostly because, oh you know, no big deal or anything. But I moved out of my parent’s house and that small town that lead to nowhere and moved to a city that I adore, with my best friend. The vibe here is perfect. I honestly feel at home here. But I wont sugar coat anything and I must say it was hard, very hard. I didn’t expect it to be easy, non the less. But damn, I worked at a warehouse from 6 in the afternoon until 4 in the morning. for ALL of summer. As proud as I am about all of this, this fight hasn’t stopped. I am currently in need of a job and have to work out things with my college. Because, when I did move, everything I had planned fell apart and now I’m stuck doing what I always have to, pick up the pieces.

But I’ve tasted freedom and I won’t go back.
